This tenant expansion for a jet aircraft leasing company on Park Avenue called for the combination of their existing office with the newly leased adjacent space. Glass office and conference room fronts were used in conjunction with windows along the exterior wall to create an open, lively feel by maximizing views of uptown Manhattan. Natural light was allowed to filter through the space to the public corridor announcing the office entrance. Hardwood flooring and differing lighting types were utilized to provide a moment of arrival at the reception space while a banquette for additional seating simultaneously created an alcove to tuck away a new pantry.
